• Experience Weight Loss Without Surgery with Orbera Balloon System

    on Nov 21st, 2018

If you’ve come up short in your weight-loss efforts, you’re not alone. Americans spend billions of dollars each year trying to lose weight. Unfortunately, many products and services fall far short of their claims. In the past, surgery was one of the only effective options for rapid weight loss. Today, you have more choices.

With Orbera weight-loss balloon technology, it’s now possible to experience rapid weight loss without surgery or anesthesia. That means no downtime and no worries about complications related to surgery. At Grossman Plastic Surgery, here’s what we think you should know about this non-surgical breakthrough for weight loss.

Transform your life

Losing weight is about more than boosting confidence and self-esteem. It’s true that being overweight takes a toll on your mental and physical health. Carrying excess weight puts you at an increased risk for a host of chronic diseases, including high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes, and even certain cancers.

Led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Peter Grossman, and the addition of renowned bariatric surgeon, Dr. Donald Waldrep, the team at Grossman Plastic surgery not only help patients look and feel their best, we’re dedicated to helping to improve your overall well-being and quality of life.

Orbera, the future of weight loss

Dr. Waldrep is now offering Orbera, a non-surgical weight-loss balloon system in the Grossman Plastic Surgery offices. The Orbera balloon is a temporary, completely reversible system that involves placing a silicone balloon in your stomach. Once in the place, the balloon takes up space in your stomach, reducing the volume of your belly so it holds less food.

Lose more with Orbera

The inflated Orbera balloon is about the size of a grapefruit. Hunger and cravings are major reasons people struggle to remain on a healthy diet and lose weight. Because the balloon changes the shape and volume of your stomach, you’re able to stick to smaller portions sizes without feeling hungry or deprived.

Patients who choose the Orbera balloon lose three times more weight than with diet and exercise alone.

Success six months at a time

The Orbera balloon stays in place for six months after insertion. During this time, you’re encouraged to develop healthy eating habits. Most patients experience dramatic weight loss during the first six months.

If after six months you haven’t reached your goal weight, Dr. Waldrep can remove the current balloon and a new balloon for another six months.       

Completely reversible

Unlike surgical weight-loss procedures that make permanent changes to your stomach, the Orbera balloon system is completely reversible. Removal of the balloon is just as quick and easy as the insertion.

After six months, Dr. Waldrep deflates the balloon and safely removes it. After the balloon is removed, Dr. Waldrep and Dr. Grossman recommends you continue healthy eating habits to maintain your new healthy weight. Obtaining a weight-loss coach increases your chances of keeping the weight off for good.

What to expect at your insertion visit

The Orbera balloon is placed in a quick in-office outpatient procedure. Dr. Waldrep threads the deflated balloon, made of soft silicone, safely through your mouth and into your stomach. Patients typically receive a mild sedative so  they’re relaxed and comfortable during this quick process.

Dr. Waldrep then fills the balloon with saline. The entire insertion procedure takes only about 20 minutes, after which you can return to your normal activities with no downtime.

Benefits of Orbera balloon weight-loss system
